Finally downloaded pictures from my kids’ and wife’s phones from our NYC trip. This’ll be a picture-heavy post, with comments along the way. Enjoy!
Beautiful sunrise to start the day
Magdalena appreciating the weather at the start
Rounding the southern tip of Manhattan
Nice view of the southern skyline
Not sure which bridge I’m going under here. Brooklyn?
Ditto. Bridge #3?
More in our series of “strangest building”
I passed the United Nations at some point…blissfully ignorant
The point of my restart, Wards Island footbridge (#5)
Entering the Hudson
Passing under the last bridge. Only 11 miles to go!
Passing the High Line
This is the cove the NYPD made us wait in while the cruise ship was pulling out
Port view of the Intrepid. Is the Nicholas Cage up there?!
Another strange building candidate on the right
I thought I’d never get to the One World Trade Center
Of course, marathon swimming is a team sport. I couldn’t have done it without my crew.
Agnes, the best kayaker a swimmer could ask for. Whatcha doing in two years?
And my kids, the best crew a dad could ask for.
Sam and Maggie
Crew’s gotta eat, am I right?!
The family and I did more than this swim during our NYC trip. Can’t visit Manhattan without seeing some stuff!
We met the Dalai Lama
And Lady Liberty
We had great Chinese food
And good local beer!
We rearranged some sculpture
Caught some great views
And of course, you can’t have a trip with IronMike without jumpography. Lots and lots of jumping!
Sadly, I have no pictures of the boat pilot, Paul, or of my observer, Hsi-Ling. Will have to remedy that the next time!
